don't do anything
Thursday: AM 45min mtb, 11mi. PM 45min spin class, interval workout including some standing-up stuff which I did not do, no idea of mileage, guessing 11 just for symmetry's sake
Friday: 1hr mtb, very leisurely, exploring different neighborhoods. I found a great lonely place to do half-mile repeats, but it was garbage day and I didn't fancy following the truck so I quit early. Lots of busy roads, slowing/stopping for traffic, construction, etc. Finally just gave up and called it a recovery day, 12.9 miles.
Today I rode 75min at the Y, including a very baby tempo-interval workout. The various cardio computers said 19.66 miles.
The night pain continues to stay away, knock wood. But the best thing of all is that the point tenderness seems to be gone! I can actually rest my bad leg on the opposite knee! I did this today and it didn't hurt, and I was so excited I called my husband at work just to tell him. "Great," he said (very sincerely) "but don't do anything." And I won't, at least not today.
For the past 2 weeks or so I've worn the walking boot whenever I've been on my feet more than about 90 seconds. I've also been able to stay mostly off my feet because I've taken significant time off work. This (or something) really seems to have helped. I'm going back to work this week, but I'm staying in the boot a while longer. Four years ago the MD made me wear it four weeks and that worked, so I might as well do it this time too.
